Tenth Of December ~ George Saunders

**** RECOMMEND ****

Shortlisted : National Book Award 2013

An unexpected pleasure
Short stories with poignancy and punch

Once I got into the rhythm of the writing style, I really enjoyed this collection.  Each story felt complete yet left you speculating about "what then?".

There were some great samples of stream of consciousness, varied points-of-view, voices in the head, dystopian corporatised futures, sci-fi realism and/or absurd surrealism.
